Castles and California – Joy and Scott

Joy and Scott were the most gorgeous couple. They enquired with me by email and I replied but we had our first actual meeting together in Los Angeles because that’s where they live and I was home visiting. It was a little strange talking Irish weddings in Los Angeles but I was delighted to get some business in while I was there.

Joy wanted something beautiful and Scott had his heart set on a castle with a hawk to deliver the wedding rings. I think we got it all covered and then some!

Their wedding day at Waterford Castle was like a California summer’s day, the hawk ring bearer totally stepped up and did the job {needless to say I was the most worried about this part}, the dinner was amazing and they all had a full Irish Whiskey tasting after dinner to get them prepared to go dancing into the night.

It was just the most beautiful day as you can see by these stunning photos by Shane O’Neill of Aspect Photography
